"The Hideaway" ~ 19.9 acres ~ Williams Mill Pond

"The Hideaway" is tucked back in the woods on a 19.9 ± acre wooded parcel overlooking a sparkling freshwater pond. Incredibly spacious, with extra room to expand into the third floor or into the basement, this 2001-built home offers 4 Bedrooms and 4 Baths in 3,450 ± square feet. The bright and airy interior spaces feature clear-finished wooden doors and trim, hardwood floors, 9-foot ceilings, and lots of glass in the doors, windows, and cabinets. The wrap-around porch and deck offer plenty of outdoor living space and add a charming country-style appeal.

Steps lead down the hill to a fixed and floating dock on the pond with it's brightly spraying fountain, swimming platform, and fresh water fishing. The pond is approximately 1/2 mile long and 300 feet wide, encompassing about 10 acres. Property owners and their invited guest are allowed to use the pond, and currently there are 3 property owners. The pond is maintained by one of them, who owns a road construction business.

A floor-to-ceiling stone hearth adds warmth to the Great Room which is open to the huge waterside deck with screened porch and hot tub. The Gourmet Kitchen features a dual-fuel 5-burner range and stainless-steel appliances, an island with bar sink, loads of pantry space, and glass-front cabinets of light oak. A waterfront box bay window provides an ambient breakfast nook, and the sink has nice views overlooking the water. There are his-and-hers home offices on the front of the house off the Foyer, (one is designed as a formal Dining Room with side-by-side windows), a full Bath, and a utility room leading to the Garage.

The upstairs Master Suite has water views, a private waterfront balcony, gas-log stove, and a slate Bath with double sinks, shower, and whirlpool tub. It provides privacy yet is in close proximity to the children's rooms. There are three upstairs Guest Bedrooms (2 are waterfront) plus a third floor that is partially finished with plumbing in place for another 2 Bedrooms and Bath. The partially finished, walk-out basement with two stairways (one from the Garage) offers a full Bath and loads of extra space for recreation, hobbies or storage. There is a 2-car attached Garage, 400-Amp service, central vacuum system, 2-zone heat pumps with gas furnace back-up (first floor and basement in one zone plus second and third floors in a second zone), an artesian well, and a 4-bedroom septic system. The exterior is clad in vinyl siding for maintenance-free living. The quality of this home is evident in every door that glides open easily and latches securely.

If you really want to play in the saltwater of the Chesapeake Bay, there are several marinas not too far away where you can keep a boat in a slip for salt-water fishing, or you can trailer a boat to many different boat ramps and explore various parts of the Bay, according to the wind and the waves.

Exclusively Offered for $595,000

SOLD 03/31/2005 for $545,000.

The waterside deck adds a lot of outdoor living space. Note the Master Suite balcony on the right side of the house.

The front side of the house is very welcoming with it's wrap around columned porch, front door with side-lites and transom, oval foyer window, and upstairs Palladian window in the hobby/guest room.

The view from the deck is very pretty with ever-changing patterns from the fountain in the pond, and the sounds of the gently splashing water are very refreshing.

The fresh water pond has a swimming platform and, best of all, no stinging nettles!

The waterfront deck is enormous and includes a Screened Porch and a Hot Tub open to the stars.

The hot tub is on a step-down deck, slightly lower, and the steps to the back yard start here. You can just see the pond dam in the distance. This pond is one in a series of ponds.

This picture of the Great Room illustrates the space & sunlight available in this home. The bay window on the right is host to the Breakfast Nook.

The stone hearth features a highly efficient wood-burning stove and adds a rustic touch to the refined interior.

The Kitchen is spacious yet efficient and is open to the Living Area.
